This is an incompatability issue between debootstrap (which is what's
installing base) and the ash shell in busybox-cvs. You can work around
it by installing 'dash-udeb' from anna (the "load installer modules"

FYI, we're not even in beta yet, so if you want a working sarge system,
it's better to install woody and then dist-upgrade

In that case, I'm curious what your impression of the installer (except
for the segfault :) is. Any input is good input. :)
